Cinecity: Hangover Square

To mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Patrick Hamilton - iconic author, saloon bar laureate and former Hove resident - this unique art installation revisits his most famous work.

Set in the seamy watering holes of Earls Court and a rain-swept Brighton on the cusp of World War II, Hangover Square is widely regarded as Patrick Hamilton's masterpiece. Now Cinecity, designer/artist Anna Deamer and students from the University of Brighton and City College present a film set for an imaginary screen version of this bleak hymn to
obsessive desire.

Two interiors, inextricably linked, form the heart of the exhibition: in the South Gallery a smart Brighton hotel room; in the north, a seedy London flat where the climactic crime scene is reimagined. Offering connections and clues to the rest of this darkly comic novel, the exhibition also allows the viewer to weave their own narratives upon the empty rooms.
